10 Movie Stars Who Are The Most In Demand Actors In Hollywood

Finding an actor who only seeks to get the job done is easy. Finding one dedicated to the job and can help a movie company raise lots of money and earn a good reputation is not. Becoming a superstar in Hollywood is no mean feat. Even established actors face difficulty going for this superstar status.

But that is not to say there are no actors in high demand. A select few have proved themselves a worthy nomination, such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in both Jumanji movies, San Andreas (2015), and the Fast and Furious franchise to name a few.

For this list, we look at 10 Hollywood actors who have seen a spike in demand. For clarification purposes, this list will include actors who can both act and do voice acting. And just a heads-up, this list only takes Hollywood actors into consideration, meaning no Bollywood stars will be featured here.

#1 Chris Pratt

Before joining the MCU, Pratt was best known for his role as Andy Dwyer in Parks and Recreation. The series went on to become the breakthrough in his career. He later featured as the protagonist of both Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World franchises.

#2 Dwayne Johnson

Before becoming a successful actor like he is today, Dwayne Johnson made a name for himself as a professional wrestler. This is also where his most memorable nickname “The Rock” came from. Nowadays, the former pro wrestler is a household name.

#3 James Franco

James saw huge commercial success as Harry Osborn in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. His performance in The Disaster Artist earned him a Golden Globe award. Despite Franco’s potential to become a household name, over the years he had been the focus of multiple sexual harassment cases.

#4 Johnny Depp

You can’t talk about Johnny Depp without talking about his most iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow, one of the most recognizable characters of all time. Aside from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, he also portrayed Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) and Grindelwald in the first two movies of the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

#5 Margot Robbie

“We’re bad guys, it’s what we do.” – Harley Quinn. It’s not too hard to see why Margot Robbie is in high demand. Her performance in Suicide Squad stole the spotlight. Not only that, Robbie received critical acclaim for her portrayal of pro skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya” (2018).

#6 Nicolas Cage

In pop culture, Nic Cage is remembered both as a meme and as one of the most successful actors of modern-day Hollywood. His contributions to the film industry earned him a position on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Being born into the Coppola family is one of the biggest contributors to Nicolas Cage’s success.

#7 Octavia Spencer

Spencer is a versatile actor. Throughout her career, she appeared in no less than 30 movies, played various roles, and won numerous awards. The breakthrough in 2011 marked the beginning of the increase in demand for her acting.

Fun fact: Octavia Spencer and Taraji P. Henson have starred in a few movies together, and the two also happen to have established a friendly relationship in real life.

#8 Tiffany Haddish

Haddish’s career did not see a major breakthrough until 2017 when a movie she starred in, Girls Trip (2017), saw both critical and commercial success. That same year, Haddish won a Primetime Emmy award for hosting an SNL episode.

Being one of the most powerful characters of 2018 and 2019, it should come as no surprise that she is one of the most wanted actors.

#9 Tom Hanks

The 1990s saw Tom Hanks’ career catapulted to stardom with great movies such as Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, and Saving Private Ryan. Without a doubt, one of the most successful actors in modern-day Hollywood. In Dergarabedian’s words: “He’ll go down as one of the greatest and most beloved actors of all time. Full stop.”

#10 Woody Harrelson

Woody Harrelson excels in the role of a drunk, snarky mentor. This is made clear by his performance in both Zombieland movies. With some 20+ nominations for various awards including Oscars, the demand for this actor is usually sky high.
